Maggie + Tom
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We know this must be a confusing and difficult time for you while you are trying to figure out the best option for you and your precious baby. We hope that you feel supported and loved no matter where you are in your journey. We know the love you have for your baby is strong. We admire you so much for considering adoption.
If you decide to make an adoption plan, we promise to cherish and love your child with our hearts and souls, provide a safe, happy home, and a life with every opportunity possible.
Know that we are praying for you and your sweet baby throughout your pregnancy, that God will fill you with peace in whatever decision you make.
We have always known that we wanted to raise a family to serve God. After struggling with infertility and losing two babies, we realized that God had his own path for us to grow our family. In 2018 we began our journey with Gladney, and have been blessed through the process with our son Eli. We have joined a community of other adoptive parents and birth families that are able to relate to one another and help each other through the process. We are excited to be going through this process again.
Our Love Story
We have been together for eleven years, and married for eight. We met in college in the church group and became really good friends before dating. We love to go to Rangers games and any sporting event that the high school where we live is playing. We have traveled to different states, seen different sights, and have even sold fireworks together. We work well together and hold fast to Galatians 6:2, which says to bear one another's burdens. Through the difficult times we have faced trying to become parents, we have only become stronger as a couple. We share each victory and failure as one. As parents we will share this love with your baby. We will raise them to love God and all others with their whole heart. We will take them on adventures and give them as many opportunities to thrive as possible.
Share each other's burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.
Meet Tom - by Maggie
Tom grew up in the Church and continues his love for God by filling in preaching and teaching Bible classes whenever he can, or is needed. He is surrounded by many close friends that he can be goofy with as well as have deep, meaningful conversations. Tom has grown in his faith and love as he has become a dad to Eli. Tom learned to work with his hands building and creating from his dad. He really enjoys woodworking and using the skills he learned by growing up in Boy Scouts. Our house is filled with many different projects Tom has made. He enjoys participating and watching any athletic event. His favorite team to watch is the Rangers. Being an Eagle Scout he enjoys adventure, being outside, and the hard work and dedication lifelong learning takes. He received a Master's degree and is a principal at the high school level.
Meet Maggie - by Tom
Maggie grew up going to church in the small town where she was raised with many members of her family. She grew up playing sports and loves to watch them any chance she gets. She likes to get her hands dirty by participating in outdoor activities as well as working on projects with Tom. She has a strong devotion to children that is evident by her being a teacher. Maggie is kind-hearted and gentle with a mothering personality. She is active in community, school, and church events. She has shown her love and devotion as she has become a mom to Eli.
Meet Brantley & Ella
We were so lucky to get pregnant with Brantley through fertility treatments after almost two years of trying for a baby. We welcomed sweet Brantley into our family on December 24, 2016 at 23 weeks pregnant. We were able to spend two emotional hours loving on him.
After more fertility treatments, we were blessed to welcome Ella to our world on October 7, 2017 at 25 weeks. We were able to hold and love on Ella for twenty-four days before she went to heaven to be with her brother. We are so lucky to have the sweetest, tiniest little doll baby!
We were matched with Eli's birth mother in August of 2019 and Eli was born shortly after in September.
He has brought our family so much joy. He is a sweet, spunky, two year old. He loves being outside, playing with trucks, and animals. His favorite place is the zoo.
The neighborhood we live in is family friendly with lots of kids playing together outside. One of our favorite things to do is play outside and talk to the neighbors. Maggie grew up in the community we are living in and we are surrounded by family, co-workers, and friends both new and old. We are lucky to be a part of such a loving community that loves us and supports us in our journey!
